I'd first like to state that I'm happy to see that most posts in the sub are quality contributions, especially by people like @killer7.
However, I'm seeing an increase in bullshit stories like conspiracies or quantum woo actually getting upvoted to the front page. This is not what this sub is for. So I urge everyone to consider these things:
- Is the link to a scientific publication, or does the article refer directly to a scientific publication?
- Is the website trustworthy (phys.org, nature, ...) and not a quantum woo or conspiracy website?
- Is the title informative and not clickbait?
I also urge the scientists on here to talk from their expertise to correct faulty news articles, or to post OC about topics that seem widely misunderstood.
This is a nice little place here, and I'd hate to see it get ruined by Dunning-Kruger idiots. I've been too busy to post lately but am willing to write some more in-depth things about physics when i have more time and people feel like reading it. But only if I feel like there's an audience that will appreciate it.
